County champion for the third consecutive year
A great day for our Pocket Rocket,
Wollaton Park was the host for the final round , of the four races, in the North Midlands Cross Country League.
Before the race Amelia knew, after good performances in the previous rounds, she only had to finish 6th or above to secure the U15G title.
The start was frenetic and our young star got clipped in the first 100m losing one of her trainers. She ran the remainder of the 3.5km race course with only one shoe!
Despite her disadvantage, she controlled the pace of the race and with 400m to go only had one other athlete anywhere near her.
When the 2nd place girl made a break for the finish line, Amelia let her go and jogged across the line, knowing the 2nd place was enough to secure the u15G overall title, in her first year of the age group.
This is the 3rd year in a row, that Amelia has managed to walk away with 1st place league title representing Newark AC.
